(12/27/12) Time to head home and get ready for my New Years trip to Nola. Well I can say that I did it again, this time with two stops. First stop was at CF Lebanon (311) in Lebanon, OH Collin Messer, the owner wasn’t in, but I did meet his brother Kyle Messer. MesserFit/CFL was a studio style place, with pull up bars coming out of the ceiling. Here in store for me was something they called “Moon Dog” Moon Dog was 3 rounds of 30 double unders, 20 pull ups, 10 burpees, 10 deadlifts, and 10 DB snatches. I actually liked this work out, well except for the burpees. It was tough to move through when you were doing it by yourself. Oh well, I finished up in 14:29. CFL is a bit off the beaten path but I had a great time. Thanks for having me!
Damn you Columbus, how can I never get through you without stopping? This time I hit up FTW CF (312) in Columbus, OH. Here I met Ryan Callahan, he owns and runs the place. FTW has a very different approach to timing. It was always open gym and he was usually there to train. You could do what you wanted or do what was on the board. I did what I wanted and hit my heavy back squat day…yes I love to squat! 5-5-3-3-1-1-1-1-1 was the scheme, hitting 185-225-275-325-345-365-385-and a sketchy 390(PR). The lift wasn’t pretty but it worked. I think that FTW has an interesting concept and I’m glad it works for them. Thanks for letting me come in and get a lift in, great talking with you as well. Take Care!!
Back to the Burgh I go, then off to Nola!
